Media Statement from Western Cape Media Centre
South African Police Service
To ensure that offenders are brought to justice, members of the K9 unit followed up on information of a vehicle capture on surveillance footage fleeing the crime scene of a robbery yesterday at a mall in Lentegeur where a cellular telephone was targeted. Five suspects held the staff at gunpoint and robbed the business of an undisclosed number of cellular telephones. Their getaway vehicle, a red Renault Clio was spotted last night parked at an address in Khayelitsha and upon further investigation and a brief pursuit of fleeing suspects, two men aged 27 and 29 were arrested.
We are hot in pursuit of their accomplices and we are also investigating the possibility that the suspects could be linked to similar robberies perpetrated at cellular telephone store in the Peninsula. The suspects are expected to make a court appearance in Mitchells Plain on Monday.
